Restaurant To Open In Historic French Chateau At 1500 Brickell

A French chateau built in 1931 at 1500 Brickell is being restored, and a restaurant has signed a lease to operate there:

The upcoming opening of BIANCONI in Miami is slated for late-2017, located at 1500 Brickell Ave. The Miami location of BIANCONI is the latest addition to owners Diana and Fabrizio Bianconi’s portfolio of restaurant concepts, which include VIA VENETO and a sister version of BIANCONI, both in Los Angeles.

A truly authentic Italian experience, BIANCONI will feature a chic and sexy ambience designed by Diana Bianconi including a magical outdoor garden with a unique lounge and dining experience. The menu will offer refined and upscale dishes with an emphasis on house made fresh pastas, prime dry-aged steaks, fresh expertly-sourced seafood, as well as original craft cocktails like their “Hot Italian Lover,” and one of the country’s most desirable wine lists. BIANCONI will also include a Privé offering exclusive late night entertainment and dining options.

While BIANCONI will be fully owned, and operated by Diana and Fabrizio Bianconi, modeled after their successful concepts already open in Los Angeles, the husband and wife team secured the historic property at 1500 Brickell by working with Camilo Miguel Jr., Founder and CEO of Mast Capital, who wanted to bring an amazing restaurant and social experience to the historic French chateau. Jonathan Carter at Comras Company brokered the deal for the prime parcel that bookends the commercial section of Brickell while sitting on the dividing boundary to the residential, making BIANCONI a welcome arrival for the sophisticated environment.

An Italian restaurant in a French Chateau-style mansion? Blasphemy! Still, it’s one of the best historic adaptive reuses in Miami.

The house was actually built in 1928, and is one of the last of many great mansions which used to line Brickell.

Their menu in California shows entrees between $34 and $90 bucks. Hope they have the food and service to back that up. Too many high end restaurants open and close in Miami, especially in the Brickell area.

Another fancy expensive restaurant …., soon to be close after one year ….any one wants to bet? It’s a French Chateau… and we don’t have a decent French restaurant in Brickell !!!!! The equivalent of the Parisian famous tourist trap called L’ entrecôte went out of business ….,the ines in Paris still open thank to Midwest American tourists Most of the places thriving and always packed with costumers in Brickell are not the high end, expensive ones!!! See the ones that have decent prices with good food and reviews , like the ones on Mary Brickell Village and Cantina la Veinte to mention fews that are always full with young crowd If most of the restaurants that are very expensive ( Goyza, Zumba, Komodo, Cipriani) will lower a notch down the prices ( and give some caffeine to their waitresses ) they will not be closing after few months or be half empty ( how they afford the rent?) laundry money? Business visas? Who knows! Still they are some irrational people that pay 15$ valet and 28 dollars for Chinese dumplings at Komodo restaurant when you can get the same and better 50 yards away in suchi Siam….. which I’m… Read more »

So happy it’s being restored. I thought another unneeded condo was going to go up there.
